training for professionals
Training is our speciality. Previously we have designed and delivered training aimed at many different groups. We have worked closely with trans and LGBT+ organisations, HSE and TUSLA over the last decade and a half to ensure that the participants have an enjoyable and informative experience, and one that ultimately benefits their patient/client.

The content of this training includes:
Addressing the practicalities of working with trans people and their families

The one day training is aimed at healthcare professionals but can be adapted to meet the needs of community groups or various other groups.
